Brandywine River Trips

We offer canoes, kayaks, and tubes along with transportation to and from the river, safety equipment and advice.  All you need to do is pick a date, time and distance. Our trips are listed below. CALL US FOR A RESERVATION, and come to our location in Wilmington, Delaware. We do the rest. We will take you to the river, put you on the water, and pick you up at our take-out before 4 pm. It’s that simple! 

REMEMBER, RESERVATIONS ARE A MUST, SO CALL AT LEAST A DAY BEFORE YOU COME TO SET UP A TIME AND DATE!  302-654-2227

All trips end at Thompson’s Bridge. This is the next one after the red covered bridge. Once you have completed your trip, paddle to the left hand side before Thompson's Bridge. You will see a set of stairs and a small rocky beach just before it. Park your craft and get out. Staff can direct you further. Shuttles run to the shop continuously. If one is not available when you arrive, it should be a short wait for the next shuttle or call 302-654-2227. All customers must be at Thompson’s Bridge no later than 4 pm.

During your 4 hour paddle you will pass two small dams. We ask that you portage around each on the left hand side. Simply navigate your boat to the river bank, disembark, and drag the craft a short distance around the dam. Once past the obstruction, get back into your boat and continue on your way. The first dam you will portage is the Wyeth dam; the second is located just before the Route 1 bridge. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT GO OVER THE DAMS, EVEN IF IT APPEARS CLEAR.
